    The Honda City Hybrid is powered by a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine intergrated with an electric motor. The electric motor receives power from a lithium-ion hybrid battery and electrically driven compressor.

    The petrol engine and the electric motor of the City Hybrid produces a combined power output of 135bhp and 170Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired to a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox which sends power to the front wheels.

    The Honda City Hybrid returns a mileage of 25.64km/l. Honda has positioned the City Hybrid variant between the mid-level E variant and top-end V variant.

    The City Hybrid receives a 6.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, touch panel air-conditioning, daytime running lights (DRL), LED tail lights, along with 16-inch alloy wheels. As for the safety features, the City Hybrid gets four airbags and ABS with EBD along with Vehicle Stability Assist. But misses out on LED headlamps, LED fog lamps, leather upholstery and curtain airbags.

    Honda has priced the City Hybrid at RM 89,200 (Rs 13.40 lakh) on-road.

    DriveSpark Thinks!

    For India, the Honda City Hybrid could be a distant dream as the Goods and Service Tax (GST) on the hybrid is high and not encouraging for carmakers to offer hybrid variants. We don't expect the Honda City Hybrid would make it to the Indian roads soon.
